Getting it to work

Just follow what is written on page https://github.com/ambrosa/DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0

Copy/paste from there (for kernel 3.2):


  • edit Makefile, option INCLUDE_EXTRA_DVB (comment out line "INCLUDE_EXTRA_DVB := include-300", delete comment in front of "INCLUDE_EXTRA_DVB := include-320")
  • make clean
  • make
  • sudo make install
  • modprobe dvb_usb_rtl2832u

Use it. Me-tv hangs, but Kaffeine works without a problem. I did it on Ubuntu 12.04, kernel 3.2, it should work on any distro using 3.0 or 3.2 kernel (do not edit Makefile if using kernel 3.0 :)).

Kernel driver status

Not supported yet. I tried 3.5-rc2, and no luck.
